Installation
Caution: The OCEANUS DSC/ATIS will only operate with a nominal
12 volt negative ground battery system.
It is important to carefully determine the most suitable location for your
radio on your vessel. Electrical, mechanical, and environmental
considerations must all be taken into account. You should select the
optimum relationship among these considerations.
Keep in mind the flexibility designed into the OCEANUS DSC/ATIS so
that you can most conveniently use it. Features which should be
considered are:
1.
The universal mounting bracket may be installed on either the top
or bottom of a shelf, on a bulkhead, or for overhead mounting.
2.
The REMOTE speaker wires can be used with an auxiliary
speaker.
3.
All connections are "plug-in" type for easy removal of the radio.
4.
Front fire internal speaker allows convenient in-dash mounting
using the optional bracket (Black - FMB322B).
Choosing a Location
Some important factors to consider in selecting the location for your
OCEANUS DSC/ATIS.
1.
Select a location that is free from spray and splash.
2.
Keep the battery leads as short as possible. Direct connection to
the battery is most desirable. If direct connection can not be
made with the supplied power lead, any extension should be
made with 2.5 mm2 wire. Long extensions should use larger
gauge wire.
3.
Keep the antenna lead as short as possible. Long antenna leads
can cause substantial loss of performance for both receiving and
transmitting.
4.
Locate your antenna as high as possible and clear from metal
objects. The reliable range of coverage is a direct function of the
antenna height.
5.
Select a location that allows free air flow around the heat sink on
the rear of the radio.
6.
Select a location well away from the ship’s compass. Auxiliary
speakers also should be located away from the compass.

Engine Noise Suppression
Interference from the noise generated by the electrical systems of
engines is sometimes a problem with radios. The OCEANUS DSC/ATIS
has been designed to be essentially impervious to ignition noise and
alternator noise. However, in some installations it may be necessary to
take measures to further reduce the effect of noise interference. All DC
battery wires, antenna lead, and accessory cables should be routed
away from the engine and engine compartment, and from power cabling
carrying high currents.
In severe cases of noise interference, it may be necessary to install a
noise suppression kit. Contact your Dealer for more information.
Antenna Considerations
A variety of antennas are available from a number of quality suppliers.
It is recommended you draw upon the advice of your dealer in
determining a suitable antenna for your vessel and range requirements.
In general, communication range is increased by using a high-gain
antenna placed as high as possible above the water line. Antennas
should be located away from metal objects. Antennas should not have
excessively long coaxial feed cables.
Antenna Selection and Installation
OCEANUS DSC/ATIS has been designed to accomodate all of the
popular marine VHF antennas. However, the selection and the
installation of the antenna is the responsibility of the user or installer.
The antenna used with this radio should be installed using the following
guidelines to insure a suitable distance between the antenna and
persons close by.
Small whip antennas (3 dB) or smaller should be installed keeping at
least three feet separation distance between the radiating element and
people.
Larger antennas (6 dB or 9 dB) should be installed keeping at least a six
foot separation distance.
No person should touch the antenna or come into the separation
distance when the radio is transmitting.

Installing the OCEANUS DSC/ATIS
After you have carefully considered the various factors affecting your
choice of location, position the radio (with the bracket, microphone,
power cord, antenna and any auxiliary cables installed) into the selected
location to assure there is no interference with the surrounding items.
Mark the location of the mounting bracket. Remove the bracket from the
radio and use it as a template to mark the holes to be drilled for the
mounting hardware. Drill the holes and mount the bracket with
hardware compatible with the material of the mounting surface.
Note:
This HEXAGON HEAD BOLT is
only for mounting the bracket
with hardware. Do not use it for
installing the radio in the
mounting bracket.
Connect the red wire of the supplied power cord to the positive (+)
battery supply. Connect the black wire of the power cord to the negative
(–) battery supply. The power cord is equipped with a fuse to protect the
radio. Use only a six (6) ampere fast blow fuse for replacement.
Connect the power cord to the keyed connector on the power "pigtail".
Connect the antenna and all other auxiliary cables and accessories.
Install the radio in the mounting bracket and connect all cables and
accessories to the appropriate jacks and connectors.
Note:
Do not use any other mounting
knobs than the ones enclosed.
Do not insert the knobs without
attaching the bracket.

Operation
POWER On/Off
Turn the unit On by rotating the PWR/VOL
control clockwise.
Adjust the volume to a comfortable level.
When you turn the unit On, you will hear a
beep, and the greeting message below
appears on the LCD for 3 seconds.
Note:
When you turn On the radio for the first time after purchase,
the channel 16 will appear on the LCD.
Last Channel Memory
The OCEANUS DSC/ATIS memorizes the last channel selected before
you turn Off the radio. For example, if you turn Off the radio on CH 12, it
will be on that channel when turned back On.
Note:
In order for the last channel to be memorized, you must have
the radio on that channel for 3 seconds.

1. DIGITAL SELECTIVE CALLING (DSC)
Digital Selective Calling is a process of establishing a radio call, it has
been chosen by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) as an
international standard for establishing VHF, MF and HF radio calls.
Digital Selective Calling has also been selected as part of the Global
Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS).
This service will let you instantly send a Distress call with GPS position
(when optional GPS receiver is connected to the OCEANUS DSC/ATIS)
to the Coast Guard and other vessels within range of the transmission.
DSC will also let you initiate or receive distress, urgency, safety, position
information and routine calls to or from another vessel outfitted with a
DSC transceiver.
See the directory section for instructions on how to setup the directory of
names.
